Raquel Julich

“Primera Dama en Deportes” awarded Woman of the Year

Raquel Julich (née Castro, of Cleveland fame) was awarded the Woman of the Year Award by the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women (NaCOPRW) on Sept. 16 on the Marina del Rey yacht, that was launched on the East River, adjacent to New York City.

Julich has had almost 24 seasons as a radio-TV-press reporter from Yankee and Shea Stadiums in New York City, working with English/Spanish media. She is recognized as the Spanish language “Primera Dama en Deportes,” starting her own bilingual sports radio programming in 1985, called Foreign Radio.

She was the first Latina reporter in the player’s clubhouse of the Yankees and the Mets and has covered league playoffs since 1986.

During this year’s baseball season, on WKDM 1380AM Radio, the official Spanish radio station of the Yankees, she partakes in interviews and commentaries on the radio show, “Extra Innings,” with Billy Berroa, Jr., Felix DeJesus, Sadiel Lebron, and Juan Baez. 

Julich and her husband, Mark, live in New Jersey and have three children, Rhonda, Daniel, and Keith.

The NaCOPRW also awarded Adolfo Carrion, Jr., Bronx Borough President, with Man of the Year, with special recognition going to opera diva Eva de La O.
